Last updated on AUGUST 21, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.3.1.0.0 to 7.5.0.0.0 [Release 7.3.1 to 7.5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

On : BRM 7.3.1.0.0 version, Rerating/Rebilling

Issue:

PCM_OP_SUBSCRITION_REARTE_REBILL does not apply rerated events on custom event type. Opcode ends with success but no rerated events are applied for an account.

Business case:

One wants to refund all events (including custom ones) created in the past with the same amount and tax code.


Test scenario:

* account has bimonthly billing cycle.
* cycle forward products are using bimonthly_cycle_forward event type.

  1. 2014/05/05 - account creation
  2. 2014/05/11 - bimonthly_cycle_forward product purchase
  3. 2014/05/11 - 4 other products with custom (usage) event type activated
  4. 2014/06/01 - billing, invoicing is performed
  5. 2014/06/01 - manually via developer center, opcode PCM_OP_SUBSCRIPTION_RERATE_REBILL executed with below input flist :
     

Questions:

1)  In the above scenario, no rerated events are applied for the account. What is the reason ? The purpose of the activity is to backout all charged events. Could you indicate how this can be done for usage events?

2)  Should the rerating opcode be executed with a special flag (what value?).

Note: One is able to rerate OOB events though.
